Art Criticism and Education Information

Art Criticism and Education completes the Disciplines in Art Education series. In the first section, Theodore Wolff deals with the role of the art critic in education. He gives a practical overview of how the principles and practices of art criticism can be applied to the teaching of art (k-12). In the second, George Geahigan begins with an historical overview of art criticism in education literature and provides a conceptualized approach to critical inquiry, asserting that the most effective form of that inquiry is the pursuit of meaning in works of art. A rare combination of the practical and theoretical, Art Criticism and Education will be an invaluable aid to anyone involved in art education.
